Growing up, Josh’s life revolved around sports. From soccer to basketball to swimming to football, he was always “in season” growing up. The main sport for Josh was baseball and he went on to play in college. After deciding to hang up the cleats and focus on school, Josh walked on to Oregon State’s rowing team because he missed the daily life of a collegiate athlete. It was in college that he got his first taste of CrossFit. During one winter break Josh decided to buy a Groupon to a local CrossFit gym. The first workout he remembers was bench press and then Grace. At the end of the workout, the coach said, “So that’s CrossFit… let me know if it’s something you want to do every day for the rest of your life.” Josh chose CrossFit as his fitness routine because of the constant variation, competitive aspect and community atmosphere. CrossFit allows for Josh to express his competitive nature in a fun and healthy way and has introduced him to some of his best friends and colleagues.
